Why always the North?

27 October 2014, 19:25

I didn't chose where I belong but God did it for a purpose, otherwise I could have chose to be in the East, West or South but not in the North. Since in the era before Christ, most of the trouble and wars recorded in the Bible histories came from the North. Consider our world today, most of the countries having conflict suffer it from the Northern part. Why always the North then? Does it means the North is a cursed land without blessings or God is angry with the inhabitant of the North?

The problem of Iraq is from the North, that of Mali is from the North, Sudanese problem started from the North, the Boko Haram here is from the North and is affecting the Northern Cameroon. Why the North, lets pray for the North. The southern and eastern part are busy showing the world their achievement by inviting either the President, his deputy, Senate President or Speaker house of Reps for commissioning their achieved project but it is a pity and sorry for the Northerners all their shares have been spent on the security issue but the matter remain as no one attend to it.

"Can anything good come from Nazareth?" if we the Northerners cant handle and develop a single state, why the federation? God is the one holding power in his hand and the ability to lead to anyone He wishes. Northerners lets develop our state first before we think of the federation. If the power is not in the hand of a Northerner particularly islam, my country ll loose its peace, why always the North? Look, Polio the North, poverty the North, poor education and desertification the North, oh God why always the North?
